7:34 am
cover this, you know, looks like we are back at it once again today. anything constructive come out of yesterday beside it is president joked they were wearing ties. >> well, some members not in the earlier talks with vice president biden got the look at the package they had been working on a 1.5 trillion or so cuts both sides had been willing to talk about. that leaves them about a trillion dollars away though from an actual deal that would be around $2.5 trillion worth of cuts and there is not a whole lot of time to figure this out. we are three weeks away from a government shut down on steroids, massive effects on our economy the treasury secretary says would plunge us back into a recession, a lot of economists worried about all kinds of problems from that. sort of a mutually as sured destruction scenario if they push that red button and push us past the august 2nd date it could be terrible for all sides so they are trying to reach a deal but as long as republicans
7:35 am
say absolutely no new taxes, and as long as democrats say we are not going to sign on to a package large or small that doesn't have any tax increases on the wealthy, it is hard to see how you get there. >> how do you see it working out then? do you see -- besides that what will make the difference here? >> they are trying to cobble together somethings that look from the outside maybe like gimmicks, you know, ways to add a few hundred billion here or there. they have already included in that 1.5 trillion things that looked gimmicky let's sell off some of our broadcast spectrum and auction it off to tell come companies and other things that are not really spending cuts, that may be both sides can agree to, there is also the potential that they may be the republicans give more on defense spending that could get you a few hundred billion dollars here and there.
7:36 am
but in the end, maybe this ends up falling apart and then the president has a tough call to make because the republicans have said they might be willing to do a short term package if it came to that the president so far is saying he will veto that but it is a lot easier to say that now, it would be a lot easier to say that three weeks from now, if we are one or two days away from a catastrophic default. >> seems like right now everyone is trying to stick to their guns the president came out and said he kind of put a package together including as he said raising medicare eligibility age but as you mentioned that also included the tax increase, republicans are saying there is no way do you see the president possibly going with a short term thing even if it is getting closer to august 2nd. his biggest fear he didn't want this to continue to drag out as they get closer and closer to elections. >> he to far is sticking to his guns, his veto -- that is his
7:37 am
sword what he can say i am cutting the line here, but the problem is for both sides, real consequences, start happening, you know this would be a government shut down on total steroids, august 3rd and 4th things like social security payments go out. >> forget what we dealt with a couple months ago. >> that was just discretionary spending, a lot of people's jobs who are watching this program but it wasn't social security payments, wasn't medicare provider payments wasn't the potential for hospitals to shut down or benefits to be cut off, i mean the consequences would be much more dramatic if he didn't increase the debt ceiling. >> do you see anything other than an 11th hour deal or are they going to push it to the limit? >> i think they will push hard to get a deal by the end of this coming weekend, every day through you know until they get a deal and you know they are a trillion dollars apart if they can come up with $100 billion a
7:38 am
day they would be making good progress also potential for whether they can hobble together some revenue package and find some sort of magic asterisk offset you know that republicans can handle one thing both sides have been talking about is whether you have a permanent fix to alternative tax which is something that is going to hit tens of millions of americans and pair that with some small level of revenue increases, that get to both sides, to sort of say well, i got something i wanted. >> so many variables are easier said than done. we continue to talk about it and read about it we will look for your stuff in roll call thank you. >> great to be here. tuesday morning today dc councilman phil mendle son will introduce emergency legislation so dc residents can buy guns and get them legally back into the nations capitol he joins us in studio with a closer look other side of the break 's's
7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
dc councilman phil mendle son will introduce emergency
7:42 am
legislation to give gun buyers a way to get guns into the city again. they have been unable the legally -- to legally bring guns into the district dc councilman phil mendle son joins us. you have a busy day we appreciate you stopping by. the meat and potatoes you are looking to make dc a federal firearms licensee so this gap we are facing between the sole gun own inner dc losing his lease and more businesses getting into this business there is a way for gun owners to get their weapons. legally. >> correct now first this is not a problem of our own making this is a matter of federal law applies to all the states the interstate transportation of firearms, a person acquiring a gun from another state has to
7:43 am
go through a federal firearms license fsl there is only one in the district who commercially operates because the market is so small and so what we are trying to do is find a solution to that problem, that has been with us since april, and that is mainly there is no functioning fsl, so people who lawfully wish to acquire a handgun, they are unable to do so right now. >> would this be a temporary fix as you see it councilman? are you hoping there are other shops or this gentleman once again finds a place to operate his business what is the long term plan >> i would love it if mr. sikes could reopen i see it as a short term fix that the government would step in, would have to apply to the atf, federal atf to be a fsl and the
7:44 am
government would only operate if there was no private fsl. >> since the supreme court gave dc residents the legal right to have handguns and there is no way to legally transfer them it has opened up the city up to lawsuits. >> there is a lawsuit pending this really isn't about dc law and i don't think that the district is vol they shall as a result -- vulnerable as a result of the litigation but there is a whole issue of firearm possession mired in politics and the court and i just think this is a better way to go, to solve this problem, for the moment, and if we can get the private sector going gain then great. >> right now, the main issue, if i were seeking -- if i were a dc resident seeking to legally own a handgun there would be no way for me to do that at this moment. >> correct there is no way to
7:45 am
lawfully acquire the handgun, because you have to get it from out of state. >> right. >> because there is no functioning -- commercially functioning federal firearms licensee. >> someone is going to turn on their tv now and not hear the whole context of this issue again, dc residents did get the constitutional right to get weapons no one is saying everyone go out and get a handgun but this is the law and we need to be able to facilitate it. >> yeah, in 2008 the supreme court said the district's law, a complete prohibition on private individuals having handguns was unconstitutional and a person has a constitutional right for a handgun for self-protection in their home but a person who wants to newly acquire a gun goes to a gun dealer out of the district because there are none in the district or if it is a
7:46 am
gift from a friend they are legally supposed to bring it to a federal firearms licensee in the district and the only one, has gone temporarily out of business. i hope he can reopen. >> he is saying it is hard to find a location because of all the regulationrules and dc after all is a very small area. >> i am glad you are asking that because the zoning regulations which the council -- we are under the home elect not allowed to do zoning councilman is not, the zoning regulations, say that an fsl or a gun dealer, can operate in any commercial district, except for the smallest neighbourhood commercial district as a matter of right as long as they are no closer than 300 feet to a school, library, playground or church there are plenty of places in the city where an fsl could open but i mean, it is a little difficult but there are plenty of places the market is so small 1200 handguns
7:47 am
registered since 2008 and most of those were under the amnesty program in the first 6 months current fsl or the one just closed down, registry is about 6 to 10 per month not a big market. got to end it there we will be watching and reporting on your measure today, emergency legislation by phil mendle son. >> thank you very much. 7:47 a.m. on this tuesday morning, heat got me all mixed up watching those temperatures it is like i don't know, watching a slot machine. >> or the gas gauge going up. with the prices for our gas yeah temperatures going up like that today, a brutal one folks main information you need to know. summer heat is in full swing we have a heat advisory that goes into effect today until noon and will last until 8:00 p.m., and that is because during the peak hours we expect it to feel

what weapon was possibly used, as you can see there was some weapon used that caused that blood splatter pattern so then they will get to look at that pattern and look at the different devices that could have possibly done that. >> reporter: the really cool thing you are doing it in a fun way but you never know you might inspire a little crime scene investigator. >> absolutely that is what we hope to do. >> reporter: well, you brought up the blood spatter thank you so much as we head on over here, we will look at things kids get to do. jackie good morning one of our forensic experts my first lesson was that it is blood spatter not blood splatter so tell me what these kids are learning and doing and figuring out. >> back here they are doing some cast off patterns and a cast off pattern is what happens when there is blood on the weapon and the force of swinging the weapon makes the blood fly off.
7:55 am
>> she is doing it with a crew driver you can tell by how it spatters that a screw driver was used. >> some times you can try to nary owe down what weapon might -- narrow down what weapon might have been used we have a couple weapons they try out and then compare that to the crime scene pattern. >> see if it matches. >> exactly see if we can figure out what the murder weapon is what weapon we need to look for closely at for possible other evidence. >> reporter: that is not the only blood spatter out there. >> no, there are quite a few kinds and we have a station set up for passive stains, that is different from a cast off stain cast off stain there is a lot of force behind it the person wielding the weapon is swinging it cast off would be if they are standing still and your weapon is dripping blood nothing but gravity p. for that, we have these droppers and some fake blood. and there are a couple different things you can use
7:56 am
cast off stains -- passive stains for. over here there are different surfaces each surface is going to effect how the blood lands on it if i drop a single drop on to a newspaper, it will form a pattern that has kind of a scalloped edge around it. but it will be perfectly round because it is passive there is no angle to it it is a 90- degree angle. >> anyone have questions for our forensic expert? you guys know everything? who killed dead fred? >> we don't know yet we don't have enough evidence but we are going to continue to work the case maybe we will come up with some questions myfoxdc.com our website, this is cool, we have a link to national museum of crime and punishment they are having three sessions, some for 12 and up some 10 to 14 they range from $275 to $435 if you want the find out specifics check it out we will continue
